Notes:

– Noah Gragson will make his first start at Mid-Ohio and his second on a road course in the NXS this weekend.

– The Las Vegas native earned a ninth-place finish in his road racing series debut last weekend in Watkins Glen.

– In two previous starts on road courses in the Truck Series, Gragson has earned one top five and two top 10s.

– Gragson has also made a combined 10 starts on road courses in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and West, scoring four wins, five top fives and seven top 10s. Gragson most recently visited Victory Lane in the K&N Pro Series West earlier this summer at Sonoma after starting second and leading 24 laps en route to the win.

Quote:

“We’re definitely looking to keep this momentum going we’ve had all summer this weekend in Mid-Ohio. I really feel like this time of year is where we can really make a move because of how comfortable I feel on road courses. We were able to come away with a good run despite some adversity last week in Watkins Glen and I am really confident that we can have an even better run in Mid-Ohio, despite having never been there before. It’ll be an interesting weekend for sure and I am ready to get it going.”
